In the early days, people used to depend on the alchemist shop at the heritage site to provide services for them. However, since the machines were discovered, everything is now automated. With this in mind, the alchemist shop no longer gets customers. And to make the situation worse, the current storekeeper is so lazy that he cannot make his shop stay afloat.
As a result, the shop lost all the customers. To protect her home, Rorona, one of the last assistants of the shop, get into action to revive the shop.
Complete quests set by the royalty, authorities, and friends and prove that your services will be missed if your shop is no longer in business. Travel the land, meet all the fascinating people and discover your own happily ever after.
